you probably did a "turnup preserve" or equivalent with the old SlugOS
version, and the new install has picked that up.
If you can't remember that password, the solution is to reset the sysconf
partition. Reflash the original Linksys firmware, or Unslung, go to the web
GUI, and use that to reset all settings to factory default. Then reset your
network settings and save them. Then you can flash OpenSlug (I'd recommend
that you use the newly-released 4.8 version), and it will pick up the saved
network settings, and reset back to the default "opeNSLUg" password.
